When beautiful socialite Helen Kent Pfalzgraf turns up dead, Salt Lake County Deputy Art Oveson - a twenty-something husband, dad, and devout Mormon just getting his start - finds himself thrust into the role of detective. With his partner, a foul-mouthed, vice-ridden former strikebreaker, he begins to pursue Pfalzgraf’s murderer - or murderers. Their search takes them into the dark underbelly of Salt Lake City, a place rife with blackmail, corruption, and murder. Throw in a cowardly sheriff seeking reelection, a prominent local physician with a host of skeletons in his closet, and swirling rumors of an affair between the murder victim and an elusive Hollywood star, and you’ve got City of Saints, a mystery based on a true yet largely forgotten murder that once captivated the nation but still remains unsolved eighty years later.

Not my usual cup of tea - but maybe it should be
I'm not sure why I bought this book, but I'm certainly glad I did. The story is interesting, the performance outstanding and the main character fascinating. It's the coming of age of the youngest son of deceased policeman in 1930 Salt Lake City, a very real and recognizable ordinary guy with fears and foibles. Such a welcome change from the super-hero Reacher kinds of guys who typically populate mysteries, which I usually choose. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and will look for more by this author and narrator. Good use of a credit.
